that the united states of america makes our own decisions on our own time lines based on our values and our interests. now, we know that after a decade of conflict the american people are tired of war. believe me, i am a too. but fatigue does not absolve us of our responsibility. just longing for peace does not necessarily bring it about. history would judge us all extroardinar illy harshly if we turn a blind eye to use of wepons of massa destruction against all common understanding of decen decenty. we know we have a president that will do what he said he will do. whatever decision he makes in syria it will bear no resemblance to iraq, iran or libya. it will not involve boots on the ground and will not be open ended and it will not assume responsibility for civil war that is already well under way. the president has been clear, any actiony he might decide to take will be limited and tailored response to ensure ay despot's brutal and flagrant use of chemical weapon system is held accountable and ultimately we are committed, we remain committed and believe it's the primary objective is to ha

was in america's core self interest to respond to the deployment of chemical weapons. and the president went further than he has ever gone in blaming the syrian government. he said they in fact care rid out these attacks. he reported that the top administration officials, chuck hagel, john kerry, james clapper, and the vice chairman of the joints chief of staff l be on a conference call with leadership of congress still scattered throughout the country. they will be on the phone tonight at 6:00. this is 116 members of congress, mostly conservatives from the isolationist wing that overlaps to a great degree with the tea party wing as well, joining together to write a letter insisting on congressional authorization. is that the prevailing view of leadership? it doesn't appear at this point. because john boehner in his own letter to the president raised a number of pertinent questions but did not insist the president come to congress. >> he did in fact stop just short of that. let's talk more about the leadership. once they get this briefing later on, how might this play out going forward? how
made the announcement we have to act. before kerry said in front of the world the word of america is at stake. before the entire administration leaked the plan to explain exactly were it had to act. right now we are way beyond the other arguments, we are way beyond the polls. way beyond the issues, is this the best way to attack. i this it is not. the only -- >> it doesn't matter -- >> cannot be -- >> you have to listen for a second to martin dempsey if the chairman of joint chiefs of staff says to you, it doesn't matter if we go tomorrow, it doesn't matter if we go next week, we will still have an effective military strike against assad. we will hurt assad. then that open it is window to this that so many americans want to take place. >> why? there is no gap that we can hurt assad. and i don't think that the chairman of the joint chiefs is the one who decides how america should act as a way to uphold its word and strength in the region. he tells the president what to work -- what works and what doesn't. we agree it could work, depending how you design it. the question is once you

states, and i think the public in large measure has come to the conclusion that america can't want these kinds of changes more than the countries themselves want it for themselves. and the difficulty of how much the united states tries to put its thumb on the scale has played out in afghanistan, and played out in iraq and it is now being tested in egypt. so, that's why i'm eagerly anticipating the president's remarks for the larger signals that it sends about the kind of leverage he intendeds to use and how much time he intends to dedicate to this particular issue which is not just -- remember, this is not just about the future of egypt. egypt, unlike other country, i think it's tom friedman and others say what happens in egypt doesn't stay in egypt. it's important for the region. important for israel and really important for the future of u.s. foreign policy. >> it's something i've always looked to as a trend-setter in the arab role. i want to bring in benjamin goldbe goldberger, times national editor. i want to start with you. this is a much larger question for that entire region

to america's calculus vis-a-vis syria right now? >> i mean, let me be blunt. if the united states decides to strike against syria, this would be an american operation. america would take ownership of this particular operation. american operation without a u.n. security council resolution, a u.s. operation without the final report by the u.n. inspectors, a u.s. operation without a broadly based coalition. france said it would join the united states. turkey and saudi arabia and qatar. but they have been the spearhead of the fight against the assad regime. thus, the united states would be joining the anti-assad regime. the reality is regardless of how you -- we try to really explain the american operation, few in the region -- and i'm talking about the middle east and the muslim world -- would see this operation as an american operation. regardless of how important the u.s. evidence is, and it's very powerful evidence against the assad regime, the consequences, i think, would be very pivotal, both for the region and i think for america's interests in that part of the world. >> professor, yes
